I love Cersei

[BOOK/TV SPOILERS] Rate them all

Recommended Posts

I hope we haven't had a thread like this before!

Here you can rate acting and looks of our season 1 actors. Below I'll post my own ratings to give an example of how it should look like. Average ratings can be computed and posted here after some weeks.

IMPORTANT: Everyone should copy the list of names and leave it in order, to allow automatic evaluation. There's no need to fill out everything though, but use a dash (-) if something is following in the same line (look at the example). Use the TAB-key between name, acting, looks and comment. Add no line breaks in your comments. Embed your rating post in code-snippets like these: [ code ] your post [ / code ] (leave out the blanks).

Acting: Do they act convincing? Note that the actors have to act what is given to them, so you are not supposed to rate Shae low because you liked book Shae better for instance.

Looks: This is no beauty contest, the question is: Do they look convincing?

Comment: Whatever comes into your mind; optional and not to be evaluated (by me at least)

Hope you like the idea.

Viserys	9	10	perfect cast, exactly like I had him pictured from the books
Dany	9	9	so beautiful
Drogo	7	10	his power is wasted except for the tongue ripping scene
Rakharo	8	8
Irri	-	-	can't keep one from the other

Lots of things here are really skeeving me out. Commenting on the weight and attractiveness of perfectly lovely children is fucking sad and unnecessary. Implying that a woman isn't attractive enough to rape is wrong on so many levels.

I left out names in case you want to rethink and rephrase some of your comments.

You mix up something there, I thought it was clear that I'm not commenting on the actors in any of these cases, but on their role in the series.

For example, I've pictured Myrcella to be more delicate, say frail in a beautiful way, for want of a better word (I'm not that good at English). The question is not, wether the child is lovely or not. She certainly is lovely, but so are thousands of children that doesn't look like Myrcella to me. As I've written above:

Looks: This is no beauty contest, the question is: Do they look convincing?

For another example, my comment on Mirri Maz Duur, was not on the actress Mia Soteriou, who is a beautiful woman, but on Mirri Maz Duur, and even hardly on her looks, but way more on her aura which mades you think "that witch will haunt me for the rest of my life and after if I dare rape her".
